Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What was your musical journey to the Dead ... and afterlife ?

For me , it started around 70-71: Beatles>Doors>CCR etc. Then in early 72 Dylan, in a big way . I heard the usual 3 or so Dead tunes they would play on the radio, but what started it for me was listening to Europe 72, a friend had bought , mainly for the cover ! I wasn't till 76 that I got to see them, and the mid 80's till I met taper friends . About the time I was seeing my first shows, I got into classical music . Later, some of this Dead related, I got into, Jazz, older rock, and R&B, roots stuff, etc . I would have liked to have met Garcia , if only to thank him for all the great music by other people I explored, because of the GD, and him .
